Greece - Sport Activities
Greece, the country where the Olympic Games were born, is ideal for the development of sports activities as well as holding sports events (sports tourism). During the past few decades, more and more big athletic events in many sports (world championships, European competitions, important international tournaments etc) have been organised in the country, culminating of course in the Olympic Games 2004, in Athens. These sports events have considerably contributed to the construction of many modern bigger or smaller sports facilities, stadiums and training centres for a wide range of sports all over Greece, where both the local people and visitors of the area have the opportunity to practise their favourite sports: from athletics, soccer, volleyball and basketball to tennis, golf, sailing or windsurfing.
Moreover, many hotels provide special sports facilities for their customers (basketball, volleyball, tennis, golf, water sports etc).
